Most modern software platforms and websites have an API, which is a data pipeline. We can use these APIs to extract the data we need into Google Sheets. Apipheny makes it easy to connect APIs to Google Sheets.
✓ Connect API to Google Sheets
✓ Works with most APIs (JSON & CSV)
✓ Make GET & POST requests
✓ Save and Schedule API requests
✓ Custom =Apipheny() formula
✓ Reference cell value in API request
✓ No scripts or coding required
Connect unlimited data sources and automate API data imports directly in Google Sheets with Apipheny. Try if free for 30 days and if you don't like it then we'll take it back, no questions asked. No credit card required.
The trial version includes all the bells and whistles like unlimited JSON & CSV API requests, unlimited data sources, unlimited saved requests, automatic data refreshes, and more.
After installing Apipheny, open a Google Sheet. In the Google Sheets menu, click Add-ons > Apipheny > Import API to open Apipheny.
If you haven't already, sign up for a developer account on your API of choice, read the API documentation, and get your API URL. Your API request might also need a key/token, endpoint, parameter(s), and header(s), depending on the API and the data that you need to pull.
If you want to use a free public API for testing, you can use this Cat Facts API URL:
Just copy and paste this URL into the add-on and click "Run".
Lastly, to call an API in your Google Sheet, add your API URL with parameters and other components like headers into the Apipheny add-on. Then just click "Run" and you're done. Your API data will automatically import into Google Sheets.
Use the API data to create custom blended reports in Google Sheets or connect the sheet to a free data visualizer like Google Data Studio to create custom views of all your data in one place. All at a fraction of the cost of enterprise data integration and visualization platforms.
Apipheny starts at $8/mo and is an alternative to Supermetrics' custom JSON/CSV connector feature which starts at $99/mo. We're also currently offering an AppSumo lifetime deal. Use your Apipheny-powered spreadsheet to create affordable marketing reports with PPC, social, SEO, and analytics data. Make your data pretty using Google Sheets Templates, or integrate your Sheet with a free data visualizer like Geckboard or Google Data Studio to create enterprise level charts and dashboards, without the enterprise price tag. We can create custom solutions, too. If you're not sure whether Apipheny is the right solution for you, just message us to scope out your project.
Every app that Google approves must go through a strict security & privacy approval process, including ours. We don't have access to view any of your Sheets or API information. The add-on only requires very basic permissions to run.
Call, parse, and post data from one or multiple APIs all in Google Sheets. Manipulate the data in Sheets or integrate your Sheet with a data visualizer like Google Data Studio. There are no limits.
Using an API can seem intimidating at first, but learning how to use an API and read API documentation is not as difficult as it seems. If you want to learn more about using APIs and how APIs work, read one of our helpful blog posts:
